Details

Part of what makes this Rebel Double Cheese super concert ukulele stand out is it's simplicity. The spruce top with mahogany back and sides give a great sound and the uke has no binding or fancy cosmetic detail except for the geometric-esque fret dots.

You are paying for a well finished ukulele made of good select woods with good hardware and one strum really brings that home. This ukulele is loud and clear without being too ferocious like some spruce tops.

The tenor neck on concert body gives the instrument a very unique voicing too. The meaty sustain of each note is apparent and accentuated by the thicker conventional depth body (the Cheesecake is the slimline model in the range). Its concert body goes a long way in focusing the attack and release of each note in a way that would probably be a bit too boomy on a normal tenor.

Phil and I fell madly in love with Rebel at the 2019 NAMM show and we were delighted to be able to share the Rebel experience with our colleagues and customers when opening the delivery for the first time. There isn't a bad or mediocre ukulele in the Rebel range. You'll find well made ukes you will want to play every time you open the bag.

Sure, the bag is a bit flamboyant and won't be to everyone's taste - but at least you'll always know where you put your Rebel!
